Rodney Hood is hopeful he will play when the Utah Jazz return from the All-Star break against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. Hood has been out with a lateral collateral ligament sprain and bone contusion in his right knee since Feb. 1. He practiced Wednesday for the first time since getting hurt but said he’s still not where he wants to be.
The following is a medical update on Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood, who has missed the last five games due to a right knee bone contusion as well as a Grade 1 lateral collateral ligament (LCL) sprain suffered in a win over Milwaukee on Feb. 1: Hood was re-examined last night by the Utah Jazz medical staff, the results of which show that the symptoms of his injury continue to improve. In order to allow the injury proper time to heal, he will continue to receive treatment and is expected to return to play following the NBA All-Star Break. Further updates will be provided when appropriate
Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood is expected to be inactive until after the All-Star break, league sources told The Salt Lake Tribune on Saturday night. Hood has missed the past four games with a bone contusion on his right knee, coupled with a Grade 1 lateral collateral ligament (LCL) sprain, after sustaining a right knee hyperextension on Feb. 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the second time that Hood has sustained that type of injury this season, having originally injured it on Jan. 14 late in a victory against the Orlando Magic.
Jazz starting shooting guard Rodney Hood is expected to miss Saturday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets with a hyperextended right knee, but an MRI Hood underwent Thursday morning showed no structural damage, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned. Hood injured the knee making a move to the basket on Wednesday night in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the same knee Hood injured a few weeks ago against the Orlando Magic. Hood missed time following that game with a bone contusion. This latest injury is not believed to be as serious.
Tony Jones: Tribune Sources: Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood expected to undergo MRI tomorrow on hyperextended right knee
Though Hood has missed five games since injuring himself late in the Orlando game almost two weeks ago, he was very relieved to be diagnosed with a hyperextended knee when many feared he had torn ligaments. “I thought it was a lot worse than what it was,” Hood said. “I’m just very fortunate to come out like this.”
Instead of being out for months, Hood is on the verge of returning to action. His medical status has been upgraded to questionable heading into tonight’s TNT 8:40 p.m. showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jody Genessy: Rodney Hood will travel but won’t play in Dallas.
Aaron Falk: Tribune sources: Rodney Hood underwent an MRI this morning and has been diagnosed with a bone bruise. No other structural damage. Hood will miss Monday’s game in Phoenix with the bone bruise, but will be day-to-day otherwise going forward
The loss of Rodney Hood to a right knee injury tempered the Utah Jazz’s victory over the Orlando Magic. Hood was hurt late in the Jazz’s 114-107 victory Saturday night. “It’s unfortunate, for sure, and unlucky,” Gordon Hayward said. “Hopefully, he has a speedy recovery. He’s a big piece of what we do. It sucks to see anybody go down.”
Hood was wearing an ice pack and elastic bandage and was walking gingerly but without assistance in the locker room. He was not made available to the media. Hood will be evaluated again Sunday, the team said.
